  • Belkin Cable-Free Hub: My Your Dongle Is Huge

    Engadget got its hands on the wireless fun that is the Belkin Cable-Free USB Hub and did a tight little testing summary. And sadly, while yesterday I was pretty psyched about picking one of these up, after reading this it sounds like it’s just one more piece of tech flotsam that needs time to mature.

  • ADS Tech's Instant Video To-Go Converts Video For Mobile Devices
